Applications of C Programming

C was initially used for system development work, particularly the programs that make-up the operating system. C was adopted as a system development language because it produces code that runs nearly as fast as the code written in assembly language. Some examples of the use of C are -

  • Operating Systems

  • Language Compilers

  • Assemblers

  • Text Editors

  • Print Spoolers

  • Network Drivers

  • Modern Programs

  • Databases

  • Language Interpreters

  • Utilities

Operating Systems :- 

The first operating system was developed using high-level programming language in UNIX, which was previously designed in C programming language only. Later on many OS were scripted in C by Android and Microsoft Windows.

Language Compilers :- 

Compiler design is one of the most popular use of C language, as C language was thew creation of compilers. Compilers of several other programming languages were designed using C language.

Assemblers :- 

Similar to compilers Assemblers were also designed in C for assemble language, It was prefered to design assembler only in C language. As it is Low level language. which makes it easier and comprehensible by the machine.

Text editors and Photoshops :- 

The C programming language is considered an optimum choice when it comes to scripting applications and drivers of embedded systems, as it is closely related to machine hardware.

Network drivers :- 

Google file system and Google chromium browser were developed using C/C++. Not only this, the Google Open Source community has a large number of projects being handled using C/C++.

Data bases :- 

MySQL, again being an open-source project, used in Database Management Systems was written in C/C++.

Gaming and Animations :- 

Since the C programming language is relatively faster than Java or Python, as it is compiler-based, it finds several applications in the gaming sector. Some of the most simple games are coded in C such as Tic-Tac-Toe, The Dino game, The Snake game and many more. Increasing advanced versions of graphics and functions, Doom3 a first-person horror shooter game was designed by id Software for Microsoft Windows using C in 2004.
